  3. Login with username and password

    Simplify login... It used to be a username and password. BRING THIS BACK! All the ridiculous hindrances I encounter, with their big brother style questions and details I consider mine and private must go! Simplify access to accounts and stop with the long, drawn out, pathetic security measures. All I did was get a new phone. Even this fact, is none of your business skype/microsoft!

  9. Offer variety of alert tones for incoming messages

    The tone that is used for my incoming messages on Skype is so soft that it’s almost impossible to hear if you’re not in the room. It would be great to have some options for different tones that are louder.

  19. picture and video without both screens

    Hello. I would like the ability to choose not to have my screen show up in pictures and videos I take when on video calls with my grandson. Not only do I spend a lot of time saving and editing but my screen also cuts out parts of the pic. or vid. very frustrating.

  20. There should be a way of being able to see your password. Can you assist with this please?

    There should be a way of seeing your password. It takes forever to change your password on Skype. They need to simplify.
